[Feature request] Report of ground troops (and maybe population grouped by species), similar to fleet report.

It becomes hard to find ground troops in late game, because there are many planets and player needs to iterate over them all to find troops. There is absolute need for a ground troops report, similar to fleet report.

Also it will be helpful to get some population report, because it is often needed to find species to inhabit a newly captured planets, and again player needs to manually look over many planets to find where there is excess population of needed planet type.

Maybe some table with grouping by planet and population type, ordered by the count of resulting population will be helpful. Probably same table may be shared with ground troops, so as to simplify the imlementation.

Agreed that it would be useful, but it could directly be integrated into the main production list of planets similarly like in the below mod:
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=533

Like above, the production could have a dedicated view for population types and numbers including ground troops, would not be needing a dedicated icon on the toolbar, and population/troop transports could be initiated right from this menu as it would be simply be a view of the existing menu where the function is already available

Rather than cramming more stuff into the current Planet Report UI, we'd like to add a new full-screen spreadsheet that could be used for a variety of purposes, from locating your next colony target to managing empire-wide population. It's on our list of things to do, just not very near the top.
